During this age in time, it is very easy to clean and detail your car just like a professional. This is because as the years have passed professional detailers and other car enthusiasts have leaked out all of the secrets to doing so including what car cleaning products to use. However, before detailing your car it is important that you do so with caution. You can easily make a mistake that will cost you more than paying for a detail from a pro. In this article, we are going to provide you with some tips to follow so you can be on your way to cleaning and detailing your car like a professional.
Use Compressed Air & Stiff Scrub Brushes When Doing Your Carpets
When you first start cleaning your car, it is important to start with your floors. When starting on your floors use an air compressor to blow out the dirt from all over into the middle of the carpet so it is easier to vacuum up. Once you have, done this use a stiff brush to loosen up the dirt. If you are a lucky owner of leather seats, you can easily restore them by conditioning them with aloe.
Do Not Use Acid on Your Tires
Once you start cleaning your tires, it is important to make sure that you are using a nonacid cleaner. Acid based cleaners will damage your tires. When cleaning your tires you also want to make sure that you do them before you start cleaning the body of your car.
Hand Wash Your Car
Hand washing is one of the best things that you can do for your car. While hand washing your car it is important that you are using a carwash solution instead of dishwashing detergent to preserve your car’s finish.
Polish Your Car
After you have washed your car, you will want to polish it to make sure that the paint is smooth. If you really want to be like a professional, you should invest in an oscillating polishing machine. This way you can get similar results as you would from the rotating polishing machine that the professionals use without having to risk damaging your car.
Wax Your Car to Protect the Paint
If you want to remember your car, the way it was when it first left the dealership you will not want to skip waxing your car. Wax does wear off after a few months yet while it is there it absorbs the stains, and scratches.
Shine Your Glass
The last thing we want to leave you with before we close this article is to make sure that you shine your glass after everything else has been done. We are telling you to do your glass last because it contains the dirt from all of the other cleaning steps. It is recommended that you go for the glass cleaners that do not have ammonia because it is bad for vinyl upholstery and it does not smell good. Your glass will look the best if you buff it with a microfiber cloth.
